The CASTEP Developers Group are pleased to announce that a hands-on training workshop will be held in Oxford from 19th – 23rd September 2022.
This hands-on workshop is targeted towards scientists who wish to use density functional theory (DFT) methods in their research. This workshop is particularly targeted to graduate students and postdocs working in UK groups affiliated with the following consortia CCP-NC, CCP9, UKCP and MCC, as well as scientists working with or supporting the UK large scale research facilities.
The aim is to teach the basics of ab initio atomistic materials simulation using the CASTEP plane-wave pseudopotential code. The workshop will consist of lectures, demonstrations and practical hands-on sessions using a high-performance compute cluster.
